I've been impressed with him. Took his goal very well vs Penrith and seemed always to be actively looking for space, which is more than some we've seen. Saw him hold it up effectively as well as knock it round a man and run. See how he does - decent back up option if nothing else.

He got on the last 25 minutes at Halifax had a decent shot on target from edge of area that forced a save from their goalkeeper... looked useful with the ball at feet, as someone said always looking for space, and laid it off decently for players pushing up a la young Lee Miller. Clearly not the finished product but looks promising. Hopefully he'll harden up given the chance and turn out to be a good signing

That's two big buggas up front he must be 6"4 looking at photo

Be pumping a few balls in box by look of things with Bennett and this lad...good options up front just hope at least one of them kicks on like Wyke did ..was hoping Miller got a good run this year I'm guessing this pushes him down picking order

Glad to see him get a contract. Hope he shows enough in those 6 months to earn a longer deal. Type of player who can only get better given the opportunity, best of luck to him. Could turn out to be a good signing, which I think Nabi will also prove to be.

bbc reporting that Stoke are after Cosgrove (denied by Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes) with a fee of 4 million allegedly reported.
By the look of it McInnes is stating that players dont need to be sold ( unless they meet the clubs valuation)
No wonder non of our board want to step down with all this speculation of our young players and Cosgrove.

Isn't standard a 20% of the profit from the sell on?

As we sold him for next to nothing 20 or 40k that's a profit of £3,960,000 giving us £792,000.

Could be neigh on the same profit from selling Branthwaite if that is the case.

We should be doing this with Branthwaite - Aberdeen have stated that Cosgrove is going nowhere for less than 4m therefore meet it, better it or bugger off.

We should start the bidding with Branthwaite at 1.5m, make it public and see where it goes, that is peanuts for such potential.

Don’t think there is a standard. TBF whatever % the club negotiated is good considering if Aberdeen had waited til the end of the season they wouldn’t have had to give us anything.

Could a larger sell on % almost work as a disadvantage because it is distorting his market value?

Aberdeen won't sell him unless they get the return themselves that they think is worthwhile for them. If they think he's worth £4m to them and we've got a 40% sell on they'd be daft to accept a £4m offer because they'll be getting nowhere near that.

That might make his price too high for any potential buyers.

Apart from Hill, I’d say Cosgrove was our best player and he hardly played - in the last 5-7 years. Says more though about the rest that have played.

40% is a good sell on.

Just as big a question as the sum of money is what clibbins does with the money. If he's projecting transfer income of £4m does he see that as covering losses for 10 years or will he release some of the funds for the first team? Cosgrove could go for £50m, not much use if we have to sit through many games like Cambridge.

Maybe a question for the fans forum? Will some of the transfer income be used for player acquisitions?

I remember watching Cosgrove come on as a sub against Fleetwood early season, he looked dreadful, worse than Mark Beck. Good luck to the lad, would never have predicted him going on to play at a higher level.

Im almost certain Cosgrove couldn't get a game due to the potential embarrassment for Curle after forking out £50,000 for Bennett. in the couple of games I seen Cosgrove play, he looked a better player than Bennett will ever be, but that isn't to hard to achieve I reckon.

I'm honestly not - he was the only player I see that had something about them, that could play at a higher level and score goals. I got stick about it then, when every man & his dog said he'd do nowt and Stockton would be a better player.

I'd maybe add O'hare, he was on loan though, but there's not many we have had recently that you can honestly say can play at a higher level.

Well watching Sportscene most weeks despite his goal record he doesn't look like a player who could cut it at Tier 2 level in this country. Still looks very awkward and that he couldn't trap a bag of cement. It's more of a sign of Scottish football that he has a decent record up there but if we were to get a nice cut from a deal it would be most welcome.
